Recipe Box Wednesday starts the shiny new year with this entry ( I first ran
across one for Leverpostej, also known as Liver Paste, but I thought it
sounded a tad revolting...). This recipe is never one I would pick up and
try, not being a huge cabbage fan, but the more I read it the better it
sounds. Served up with some wonderful bratwurst, or pork roast, it could
be quite tasty! And I can just hear my dad now "Oh Kris, you don't know
what you're missin' !" He would probably request it be served with ring
bologna (oh no, evil childhood dinner memories come flooding back...)
Let me know your thoughts....
Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage
1 med head chopped cabbage
1 tsp. salt
Almost cover cabbage with water, add the salt. Simmer until almost soft
about 1/2 hour. Pour off some of the water, leaving about 2 cups in pan.
1/4 c. vinegar
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 1/4 cup sliced tart apples
scant teaspoon caraway seed
Simmer about 1/2 hour. If U wish, add a little butter or bacon fat.
As always, this is typed just as it is written on the card. I am sure your
house will smell quite fragrant after a few hours of cabbage cookin'....
